Travel is to mind what workout is to the body. Hiking is one such sport that beautifully clubs the workout for the body as well as the mind. In the serenity of the nature, you lose yourself & find yourself at the same time. Once in while you should go to places that make you feel small.
Garden Hill is one of such places. The gigantic mountains & the beauty of the nature will make you rejuvenated. Even if the hike makes your muscles sore, you will experience a soul enriching experience. The night view is particularly breathtaking. The sunset in the evening & the star lit night view of Hong Kong is the perfect therapy to destress oneself.
The Garden Hill in Sham Shui Po is situated quite close to the Garden Bakery Plant, so the citizens gradually called the mountain as Garden Hill. The mountain is only 90.6 meters high, which is actually a small one and is very easy to walk. You can reach the destination by stepping on around 400 steps, and the whole journey only takes about 30 minutes!
You can take a pause to see the hustle & bustle of the busy urban scenery from Garden Hill, which is very different from the mountain scenery you see on other mountains! We would advise you to carry your own torch especially for night adventure as a safety measure to avoid accidents as the stairs may not be visible at night.
If you want to capture the essence of Hong Kong, Garden Hill is the must visit place on the itinerary. This is both, unique & exquisite.
